um, I still do not get it - why do you keep talking about 
Windows? ... it is Fedora here

and you *need* to use root to achieve some things, like editing 
configfiles or so

so, what is wrong about using Konqueror as root?

is, for example, Midnight commander any better? - or typing "cd 
something; ls; cd something; ls ..." in bash?

is it just because you hate Konqueror, or you hate GUI in 

no one ever on this thread was talking about "doing everything as 
root" which seems to be the thing you argue against

"is considered"? - no, *you* and a few others consider ... but 
there is also a number of people that disagree - do not promote 
your personal opinion to the ultimate truth(tm)

you want to babysit the others

I want the freedom

no, they are not free - they have to overcome the obstacles put 
by the other group

to me, it does not - I really do not understand why should I 
study tons of TFM just to learn how to allow me to edit a 
configfile or whatever
